Wire harness manufacturing process validation and optimization methods have unique challenges. Firstly, extensive pre-launch production trial runs and prototyping is expensive and time-consuming. Secondly, frequent production changes hinder the efficient planning of investment capacity and resources. Lastly, the heavy dependency on human labor makes calculating a single correct value for cycle time impossible— all combined with the constant race against time to ramp up production and implement changes efficiently.
Watch the video to discover how digital twin technology can help manage wire harness manufacturing challenges.
Efficiently design and optimize the wire harness manufacturing process
The success of wire harness manufacturers is heavily dependent upon their ability to design and optimize manufacturing processes efficiently. But what if they could analyze and optimize the manufacturing process well ahead of actual production? Siemens Capital's digital twin of product and process directly feeds the digital twin of production, enabling Tecnomatix Plant Simulation to help validate and optimize production processes.
Utilize Capital's digital twin to enable Tecnomatix plant simulation
Siemens Capital's digital twin technology combined with Tecnomatix Plant Simulation enables the creation of a coherent digital thread from wire harness design to manufacturing. You can create optimized and ergonomic formboard designs for efficient production lines and factory space usage. At the same time, you can quickly distribute tasks across workstations in the production line to optimize manufacturing efficiency.
Significantly reduced ramp-up times in wire harness manufacturing
Tecnomatix Plant Simulation analysis and visualization capabilities support optimizing production systems long before the actual production line is built or on an active production line without interrupting work. It enables dynamic utilization charts to visualize, understand, and improve resource usage. Users can spot production bottlenecks to fine-tune models and optimize performance while simulating new production conditions and test scenarios to improve model fidelity.
